Fixtures

Fri 8th Jan 16

19:45 Bath Rugby Bath P - P Sale Sharks
Postponed to allow Bath to travel to Toulon.


Sat 9th Jan 16

15:00 Exeter Chiefs  v   Gloucester Rugby
Both sides have growing injury lists, but at home Chiefs should have too much and maintain their place at second in the table.

15:00 Harlequins  v   Saracens
Common wisdom is that Quins are incapable of beating Saracens. common wisdom is that they will struggle up front and then run into blind alleys. Common wisdom states that Saracens are too clinical, too ruthless and just too awesome for a fragile Harlequins.
Well Love sacks to common wisdom. Quins are tougher up front this year and should conditions be dry have easily enough to run the famed Sarries defence ragged, especially if McCall decides to conhcentrate on next weeks visit from Ulster. Will it be dry though?

15:15 Leicester Tigers  v   Northampton Saints BT Sport
Saints are in the poorest form I have seen since the relegation season - yet win at their old rivals and they will be in the Top 4! Will Mallinder decide to come with his strongest team, or will he be looking ahead to the Glasgow fixture next week? To be honest I am not sure the visitors can afford to worry about next week, they have to win this weekend in front of what will be the biggest ever crowd at Welford Road. Saints will be ruing the injury to Brookes, but will be certain they can get scrummage control - though it is possible that young Paul hill may learn a lesson or two from Marcos Ayerza. Saints will look to replicate the Sarries template from last week, take the scrum penalties, kick to the cornes and maul like crazy. They have shown little creative ability otherwise this season - but may well be looking for a Penalty Try TBP.
This game is free to air, for any interested.

Sun 10th Jan 16

13:00 London Irish  v   Newcastle Falcons BT Sport
Huge game for both clubs, but even more so for the hosts. They cannot afford to lose but can their half backs give them the control they need? Newcastle will look to dominate at scrum time, but have to improve at the lineout if they are to secure a vital away win. In their favour, the lineout is an area that LI have really struggled in. LI will be looking to take advantage of what has been at times a porous defence and certainly have some speedy backs who could prosper.


14:00 Wasps  v   Worcester Warriors
Wasps have looked like Gods in the ECC, but like dogs at times in the AP. Gopperth has had his one good display of the season and shoudl be dispensed with. Simpson needs to regain his earlier form. Most of all though they need hughes and Smith to be fit.
Wuss will fight for everything and never give up. If Wasps are not on top form they could prosper.

Yes he is Sgt, I wonder with May out and Nowell off yesterday (not sure how bad it was) might Eddie have a look at him.

Low quality affair so far.  We've not shown anything other than the Lewington break and Falcons have huffed and puffed a lot without looking threatening!

Didn't look a lot wrong with what Narraway did, on the other hand I think teams should be penalised for not competing anyway. Very Happy

Oh dear lord another kick missed.

Why does Socino not take the kicks? He was a points machine at Rotherham.

YOu know I don't think other teams fans really know how bad it is being a falcons fan.

Not only do we have to put up with defeats...but we have to put up with watching performances like that.

Oh for the free running rugby of last season. It certainly puts a valid case in for no relegation.

Sounds like a plan, please don't put the rugby on though.

Well GF. Lewington leapt magnificently to take the restart and score. Then a Geraghty crossfield kick was caught and dotted down by Ojo.

Sam I think it would be worthwhile having Lewington in the Saxons at least..

Agree there should have been a yellow. We are chasing the game and they committed penalty after penalty.

It's what I've read, no idea if it's true.

Hasn't Eddie seen quins and sarries already?

He's definitely seen Quins and I suspect Sarries and definitely spoken to O Shea

THe bottom line is...Irish look far more dangerous with Ball in hand.

We looked like that last season yet this season we look like Whitley Bay Rockliffe would give us a game.
